This super filling, high protein vegetarian salad is a great tasty on the go recipe for truck drivers, students, busy people, or anyone who needs healthy grab & go meals with no re-heating required.
The vegetarian protein options allow the salad to be kept at a room temperature for at least a day without having to worry about going bad. You can also keep this salad in the fridge for a few days to get a even better taste from the sesame oil. Unlike a lot of salads you actually feel quite full due to the high fiber, high protein, and healthy fat content of this salad. This salad is meant for 2 servings but you can also just eat this in one sitting if you are extra hungry today. If you increase the amount you can also make this into a meal prep recipe and make 4 to 6 mason jar salads.
